New York Men’s Day once again put American menswear in the spotlight at New York Fashion Week.

Perry Ellis, meanwhile, has launched a reboot with her new generation-appropriate American Her Sportswear. Varsity jackets, joggers and hooded sweatshirts that say “America” tell the story of what young athleisure-loving American consumers are looking for in menswear. Christopher Fraser
